It's All New at Papertake Weekly

Good afternoon my lovely crafty friends.

Hope you had a wonderful weekend.
For me it was what I love best - time spent with the family - and a scrummy Sunday roast :o)

Then I started getting details and making notes for the wedding stationery for Jamie and Rowena later this year - but September will be here before we know it so definitely need to get started with it all.

So a quick order to The Ribbon Girls so I can put together initial samples - fingers crossed they like them and decisions can be finalised asap :o)

Anyway enough waffle - I'm really here to share my DT make for the new challenge over at 

and this week the fabulous theme is


So that good be New Home, New Baby, New Job or like me and a few other DT New Stash :o)

My scrummilicious Granddaughter Lola Arizona's mummy (Katy) bought me some 'Gorjuss' stash for Christmas - including some mini decoupage sets and scrummy papers and here's what I did with them:

Card Ingredients:
Image: Simply Gorjuss Mini Decoupage 'Let Down'
Design Papers: Simply Gorjuss 6x6 Paper Pack
Ribbon: Simply Gorjuss Ribbon Pack
Sentiment plaque and faux brads - I added a touch of Glossy Accounts to them - from decoupage kit

Hope to catch up with you all later this evening - will be looking for something to do as Jack will be busy revising as he started his Mock GCSE's yesterday - but I will have to take over the quiz master role as my DH is away until Thursday :o(

Have a fabulous day.
